Mango and Mates – Daily Painting

Watercolor on paper 10″ x 7.5″. Available

What I learned on my weekend vacation that I decided to apply today …

Colorful shadows with reflected light. Playing around with complementary schemes.
Being bold with wet in wet painting.
Getting more daring with saturated color.
Painting watercolor standing up (even when not plein air) to give more arm/shoulder range.
Mixing colors from a limited palette.

Oh, and this is not the same mango that my husband was pining for before. That one went into the margaritas.
